For any of you familiar with National Forest Campgrounds, you know they are not the most RV - friendly places around. I love the outdoor experience that I get at a NFS campground as opposed to the "subdivision-style" experience at most private RV campgrounds. But at most NFS campgrounds you're lucky if you find any amenities short of a level parking spot and a pot to pee in.

Except at Redstone Campground in the White River Natl Forest in Colorado. Reservable sites in one of the two loops of this campground have both water and electric hook-ups (sorry... no sewer - but you can't have everything). They also have flush toilets and real showers - both kept surprisingly clean.

Hey..... That's CLASS for a National Forest campground!!!

The campground is on the Crystal River (bring your fishing gear) just north of the tiny burg of Redstone, and about 15 miles south of the town of Carbondale on Colorado State Highway 133.

About 10 miles further up the highway is the town of Marble where the new stone for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was just mined last year. And about 30 miles away, on the other side of Mounts Sopris and Snowmass is the town of Aspen (for all you shoppers and people-watchers out there).

One night when we were camped there, the 80 year-old mayor of Marble came down to the campground to put on a slide show presentation of the history of the Crystal River valley - cowboy hat, boots, six-shooter, and all.
